ody Pagano’s husband, Joe Pagano, started visiting
Bald Head Island in the 1970s, not long after the southernmost of North Carolina’s cape islands got electricity. In the 1990s, Joe, the founder of UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, built a house designed by his son, Stephen Pagano. Now he and wife Jody visit the island for long weekends and a few weeks in the summer, often with family. We asked Jody to share her tips for an enjoyable trip to Bald Head.
